Wasn't worth the time and ¥200. There was barely any "art" inside the tower. The observation deck had small round windows which were barely as big as a basketball. Looks like the shape of the tower is supposed to be the "art" but in daylight it just looked a bit rusty. Looked great in the nighttime pictures which they had in the lobby so do not go there during the day, I guess? Frankly I'd rather pour hot water and watch my cup noodles cook. Wouldn't recommend.

I took the 500 Yen tour that includes a tour of theater, concert hall and part of the gallery plus a complimentary coffee. Nice place but not jaw dropping. They were repairing the sound system and it was not a very photogenic sight. The tower looks best at night with the illumination but you can view that for free from outside. The tower is designed in the shape of a DNA and while impressive, there is nothing to do inside the tower.

Awesome old style theater, was fortunate enough to sit on the third floor. Looked like great seating all around. Went up into the art tower afterwards and enjoyed the view and unique architecture.

It's an amazing place to visit at night! The area is surrounded by colorfull light and the tower sparkles. You can't ascend it at night. But that's ok!

This is a contemporary museum of art. English information is available. When I went, the exhibition being shown was titled something along the lines of a Future World, a world without humans. Check out Art Tower Mito's webpage to see current exhibitions.
